Have you heard about ISAPN's Boot Camp?

Boot Camp is a one-day program designed to provide today's APRNs with practical information to help them in their practice.  Participants receive timely, up to date perspective from seasoned practitioners giving them a "leg up" in a competitive marketplace. 

It really is a must-attend for practicing APRNs who are considering a career change and APRNs nearing graduation.

What topics are covered?

Transitioning from RN to APRN- learn about the challenges of being a new APRN, common misunderstandings about APRNs and the "Queen Bee Syndrome".  Also, learn a few strategies to make the transition easier.

Interviewing Skills - know what to expect when interviewing for an APRN position, some typical questions and 6 common mistakes to avoid.  Be prepared and know what you want before the interview.

Contract Formation and Negotiation - uncover 4 common myths about negotiation and how to respond to tactics like "good guy/bad guy".  Know what preparation is needed to negotiate your best deal and what's in a good contact, especially for APRNs.

Malpractice Issues - Learn about "proving the standard of care" in malpractice cases, compensable damages, policies to avoid the charge of "failure to communicate findings" and when negligent referral is applicable.

Reimbursement 101 - Know why APRNs must be personally involved with their reimbursement policies, the need for equitable reimbursement policies and how to address them.  Learn a few differences between Medicaid, Medicare and commercial insurances with APRN reimbursement - and why you should bill under your own license/number!

The Nurse Practice Act - Do you have a 2-minute explanation of what an APRN does?  Get one here!  Also learn what the Nurse Practice Act says about scope of practice and step-by-step discussion of licensure requirements.

ISAPN organizes this event every year. We are always looking for a host school/college.  Host sites receive a discount on registration for all their students.
